Orthopedic Practitioners can Attend a Foot Course Provided by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education

Foot Course

Orthopedic professionals who specialize in diagnosing and treating foot injuries can attend a specialized course provided by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) to improve their approach to lower extremity care. Each year, FORE provides a wide spectrum of conferences, such as Current Solutions in Foot & Ankle Surgery, Trauma 101 and Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma, through which participants can discuss emerging techniques in foot and ankle care, evaluate new surgical and non-surgical treatments and even gain hands-on experience at select events.

Participants at each FORE foot course will learn about diagnostic and therapeutic options for conditions such as:

  • Foot fractures
  • Forefoot injuries
  • Deformities
  • Ankle arthritis
  • Tendon injuries

Each foot course consists of lectures and presentations, interactive panel discussions, case controversies and Q&A sessions. Sessions change from one event to the next, although recent areas of focus have included orthobiologics, secondary treatment options for failed total ankle replacement surgery, Achilles tendon lengthening options and considerations for treating patients of advanced age. Select courses also offer hands-on training and cadaver labs, allowing participants to explore the latest advances in surgical navigation, powered instrumentation and other similar innovations.

FORE’s lower extremity, foot and ankle courses are open to orthopedic surgeons and non-operative physicians, as well as physical therapists, sports medicine specialists and physicians’ assistants.
